    dual boot windows RT and Android??

    I am thinking of buying ASUS VivoTab RT TF600T-1B139R which runs on Windows RT. Can I also install Android in order to be able to use either by re-booting or somehow else??

    Thanks

    Not presently, RT tablets are too locked down presently...

    The XDA developer's Forum has a couple of topics covering it and are where most of the people working on bypassing the limits can usually be found... They already developed a jailbreak for example and started work on porting desktop apps... Still a long way from working out a dual boot option yet though...

    Thanks for the info dude!!

    Hopefully one day they will figure it out, as it would be nice to be able to have them both. i know that asus has already ASUS Transformer AiO P1801 desktop which works on windows 8 and once you detach the "monitor" 18 inches, it works as a tablet running on android...

    i have another question on that issue.... would it be possible to have android installed on a memory card and once you insert it on the tablet, somehow be able to switch from windows rt to android?

    If they can get it to boot, yes... this has been done with other Android devices and even a few older Windows Phones. The UEFI is just a real problem to work around right now... So it may take quite awhile to figure out...

    Mind that examples like the AIO is also switching hardware... the tablet part is a self contained tablet running Android, while the base station has the desktop hardware and is running Windows. So the screen just turns into a monitor when docked...
